It consists of a two-story, five-bay-wide and four-bay-deep main block, flanked by one-story, two-bay-wide wings. There is also a large two-story rear wing. It features a full-width, one-story open porch with Ionic order columns supporting a deep entabulature. Also on the property are a contributing fountain (c. 1860) and two small 19th-century sheds.[2]
